Default Regular expression to select non-matching pattern

Hi All,

I am new to regular expressions so this may be very basic.
I want to select lines containing non-matching pattern.

For example:

If above are the given then I want cities except "Delhi"

Please suggest. Thanks.

// Any character not in "Delhi"
Regex regex = new Regex(@"[^Delhi]",
            RegexOptions.IgnoreCase |

Sample Run:
Matching: London
Matching: NewYork
Matching: Delhi
    No Match
Matching: Mountainview
